Winston will always come when I call him, so does Cabbit. Nyska comes only if she wants to. Could it be a male/female thing? They have all received the same training.

I think it's just personality, not a male/female thing. Zephyr generally comes when he's called, Maisie can go either way and only comes if he feels like it. They're both males.

Margaux always comes when I call her; if she doesn't, then I get worried. The few times she hasn't, she was either really not feeling well, or I'd inadvertently closed a door and left her out on the deck or in my bedroom. Oops.

Celia only comes when she feels like it. If she's sleeping, she'll generally open an eye, look at me, then close it again.

Skooma comes because I trained her that her name means treats. Sugar comes to me if it looks like I have food/ I need to feed her/ Skooma is coming over which might mean food etc.

Samir comes all the time when he is called. He lives for treats, so that's ab easy one. kricket comes when I rattle the treat jar. Alanna used to come to treats. But, she's learned it means I'm leaving so she's started hiding.

Missy and Zipper will come because I always associate calling with yummies. All the rest ignore me.

Penny knows her name and will run to me when I call it, regardless of whether there's food in the picture. She just likes attention.

Nala, on the other hand, has decided that she is beneath responding to her name and will come to me on her terms. In fact, she'd rather have her staff seen and not heard.

Whenever Midnight, the wild cat, calls (meows) - I come running bearing food and/or treats. Wait - that's backwards isn't it? Never mind.

Shepherd Book comes when I call either of their names. He wants to be sure he's not missing out on something wonderful.

MowMow almost always comes when I call his name. If he's super comfortable he may just "MOW" back at me instead. If I insist and keep calling him he gets up and comes to me, but he makes huffy noises while he does it...crotchety old man...

It's hard to say with our needy kitty. Unless she's fast sleep, she'll usually come over when we pay attention to her. I feel like she is never actually far enough for us to test it though, haha! Ever since we got her, a couple of months back, she usually hangs out within a meter of us at all times. She even sits next to the sink while I brush my teeth and do my makeup in the morning. And if we change room she'll come along even if she is sleeping.
